This week with our assignment for Mikes Bikes due, I found it stressful. At first getting the just of Mikes Bikes and figuring out how everything worked was literally like a hike! It took a long time, time I did not have. Therefore, my first real encounter with this program was a nightmare though from this, I have learnt to better my time management skills.

From the reading I found this interesting; “change on this scale depends on teams because behavioural change occurs more readily in teams” (Zatzenbach & Smith, 1992). Change is very important especially for managers in today’s day and age as with the fast pace of change of our surroundings. So, to identify that change is probable to occur in teams is thought-provoking indeed. From my experience in being in teams, I would say this statement is true. I will most likely make more of an effort to fulfil my role in a team due to the collective responsibility and not wanting to let my team down.  Subsequently the whole team usually has the same mind-set, working together towards the same goal and ultimately achieving effect change.

I was anxious during our Thursday class when we were being put into teams. I have always had the privilege of a great team in the past and was hoping that would happen this time around and as to my favour, it did! My team seem like an awesome bunch from first impressions and I look forward to working with them for the remainder of this semester.

  1. Hey! I think you understand what is required of you when in a team really well and it shows through your reflection. I like how you've picked something from the reading and chosen to elaborate more on it in terms of what your experience is going to be like over the next few weeks. And I think it's nice how you've put in that you like your team and the team selection worked out well for you! (smile) haha. If I was to give you advice to work on your reflections I would probably suggest three things. The first is to follow Daudelin's steps and have a more clear structure (eg: problem, analysis of problem, formulation then action/solutions) because it helps the reader understand what you're trying to get across better. The second thing is to maybe talk about the readings abit more? You've taken a quote from the first one but maybe talk about both, and if you don't have anything to say about the second or if you didn't read it then you could just say that! Hahaha it honestly doesn't matter just as long as you talk about all the readings from the week (smile) and lastly I think for next time you could possibly just say one/two things you're going to improve on for the following week? It just enhances the purpose of doing reflections! So yeah, I'm sorry if there's too much to cover or if I've just been blabbing on and you're confused :/ lol, this is just my point of view but other than that you're doing well! (big grin)
